Just wondering if anyone has travelled around the region ( not using the usual tourist packaged holidays). I'm looking to go somewhere completely different for a month or two with my partner in 2013 and Cambodia and/or Vietnam sounds very appealing so I would appreciate any comments/experiences from those who have been there.
Thanks in advance.

local busses are dead cheap, try and do home stays........living with the locals in their villages.............cheap but can be interesting for the faint hearted!!!!

We don't mind a bit of that...wherever we go, we try to eat where locals eat etc.. as long as we don't get killed or poisoned, then I'm sure we can manage. smiley

Worthing - But will travel WORLDWIDE!

I am off to Asia at the end of Jan for a few months, i have a few bookings out there and as my travel etc is paid i'm going to have an explore after too! I am visiting HK, Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore... And HOPEFULLY Borneo! I can't recommend what to do or see (YET!), but i can recommend this webstie for ideas etc -

The people in the forums are really helpful and there are plenty of ideas on there... Have a great time away whatever you choose to do! Oh, and here, here for the Lonely Planet guides!
A neat little space to write something profound and thought provoking...

Thanks for the link Ella... I'll give it a try!

I think I'll confine my trip to Cambodia, Vietnam and maybe Thailand but I'm not that bothered if I don't get time to visit the latter.
